Q&A: Nick Ennis, Director of Baseball Operations, San Diego Padres

Being first and it not being a good idea, that is not a good outcome. Having a ####-ton of ideas and putting them all in place — they’re not all going to be good ideas. And some of those you’re not going to realize why they are bad ideas until it’s too late. From an ideation standpoint, new ideas is not really the challenge for the industry. It’s just making sure that the stuff that is good that we do develop, making sure that we have the ability to implement it. Which isn’t really a number of analysts problem.
